president obama heads to colorado to push for new gun control legislation. but he's coming under some serious fire for using decades-old information to sell a key part of his plan. we're live from washington. >> president obama barack obama continues his pressure campaign on a reluctant congress to pass federal gun control legislation. he's heading to colorado to meet with police and local lawmakers displaying a gun control package signed into law by governor john hick looper, yet his arguments are supposedly full of stale statistics. 40% of all gun purchases were made without a background check, but that number is almost 20 years old. >> why wouldn't we want to make it more difficult for a dangerous person to get his or her hand on a gun? why wouldn't we want to close the loophole that allows as many as 40% of all gun purchases to take place without a background check? why wouldn't we do that? >> that 40% bit was pulled from a study where 251 answered the question about where they got their guns. now we're hearing from groups like the washington gun association. members held a press
, greta. >> is the obama administration -- i read the front page of the washington post, above the fold, are they seeking to relax the lending requirement, urging banks to once again lend to people with weak credit? >> weak might not be the right word. they are encouraging people to people with good credit, 600, 650 scores. what's been happening, that lending hasn't happened. if you have fantastic credit, you can get a loan and the housing market is coming back. but the people in the middle range are having a harder time. if you don't have 20%, they are having a harder time. they are trying to get the housing market going stronger. >> do they want have fear in when i read the article, i thought -- we are not doing this again isn't problem is that when you bury people with debt, who can't carry it, they are doing at this time debt services, spending their mon oat debt service, they are not going to rev up the economy because they don't have the money to buy the toaster. and if they get over their heads and their houseses are underwater, they can't move to get a job if they lose a job bec
at this national journal headline that says, "obama's gambit raises pressure on boehner, edges washington towards a budget deal." do you think that is what this is doing? do you think the president is seeing who will blink over it? >> as you heard the congresswoman say, a lot of folks and not even just progressives, folks were concerned about chain cpi and sort of the impact that that's going to have. the president is really going to have to make clear what's the full picture in order to have the support that he needs to raise those stakes for boehner. i agree with what the congresswoman is saying that there's every likelihood given to history that there will be some reason why some -- now that this idea has been proposed by the president, it's a terrible idea and we can't go back to the status quo arguments. >> we heard on "morning joe" this morning that this could potentially exploit the cracks within the republican coalition. is this doing just that, exploiting those cracks and the analogy that i use that the republican party is like lucy with the football and charlie brown, once they get some
on easter? a washington pastor slamming the religious right and barack obama sitting right there. >> when you go to an obama church service, all you're going to get is republicans being blasted. >> political attacks are not what anyone would expect to hear in an easter sermon usually, this is what the christians talk about the good news, that holiday is sort of the heart of the good news. >> the president of the united states chose a preacher whose sermon was devoted to claiming that republicans want to force blacks to ride at the back of the bus again. >> what they heard in the sermon was anything, but happy for easter. >> a preacher who in his sermon said republicans want to make women go back to the kitchen. >> he is not a politician. he's not a senator or a member of congress or the president. this is a sermon at a church here that's been visited by presidents from both parties for many, many years. >> why did the president sit it and listen to this. why did the president not stand up and excuse himself? this is not the kind of sermon a president of the united states ought to have to
people of medical care. we have president obama fundraiser. members of congress home in their district. some say they are doing constituent work. they are traveling around the world visiting different countries when they all should be back here in washington exempting the cancer drugs to the medicare patients can get their chemotherapy. if they would just come back to town and do their jobs. >> we have seen a massive consolidation in the last four years before the sequester of 40 years ago we evolved this cancer delivery system so that you can get treated in your low he cal community. and now we are devolving it and consolidating cancer care back again. patients fall through treatment cracks and have to go to the hospital. unfortunately costs not only the patients more but costs medicare more none any. i agree something has to be done about this immediately before it becomes even more of a crisis than it is. >> greta: with the article that i read it says because cancer drugs must be administered by physicians they are among a handful of pharmaceuticals which covers doctor visits and su
us now from washington ace reporters carl cameron and james rosen. how seriously, rosen, is the obama administration taking this north korea deal? i mean, these people really can't do much damage. they can invade south korea. they will get their butt kicked, right? >> well, they can inflict a lot of damage. they don't have the missile technology to strap one of their nuclear weapons to a missile and hit our shores, but the bottom line to answer your question is u.s. officials take it very seriously. both, a, because they have nuclear weapons. they have an army of over a million men. we have 28,000 troops stationed in south korea and also this is a cash starved regime that has never met a missile or nuclear technology that it didn't want to or try to sell. proliferation is is a big concern. i have talked, bill, to the guys that have actually dealt face-to-face with the north koreans, we don't have diplomatic relations with the north koreans, but we do have something called the new york channel which operates through the auspices of the u.n. in new york. i have talked to the guys who ha

a overlooking. >> chris: no doubt. [ laughter ] >> i just have to get that in. obama runs in 2008 as a man who is going to change our politics. he is only going to implement new ideas. he is going to change the way washington works. and the essence of the corruption he was attacking was the money. so, number one, in 2008, he is the first who refuses public financing for his campaign. he raises a billion dollars. and now what he is doing, he is campaigning, look where he is in the third of the month in the second term, if there is ever a time in the 8 years when you would relax on the money and try to govern, it would be at this point. what he has done completely in contradiction to what he promised as a candidate in 2008, he institutionalized the permanent campaign. evidence is out there raising money at the beginning of the second term when he ought to be here working on the budget on sequester and all these other issues. but now he is the essence of exactly the system that he denounced and he promised he would messianicly redeem. >> chris: let me ask you about that marah and then we will go

here in washington over the last couple of days now. you know, you've seen the obama administration, you've seen the pentagon take a very public stance really challenge the north koreans verbally and then the north koreans have ratcheted up. and there's a lot of concern that everybody's just amping up, you know, and it's pretty much going to slip out of control if everybody doesn't take a deep breath and step back. today, the administration, the pentagon, very much doing that making the decision that they will ratchet back on their rhetoric. not necessarily pull back on any of these military moves, but ratchet back the public rhetoric and hope that they can cool down this whole thing. >> all right. barbara, thanks so much. barbara starr there. >>> get more perspective on what is happening in north korea, the abilities as well as intentions in ramping up this aggressive posturing, an expert from columbia university, thanks for joining us. what do you think of the pentagon and change in posture that they're going to be stepping back from the rhetoric. do you think that's a good idea?
reliant on the judicial branch to do things. i will read an excerpt from the "washington post" which says giving liberals a greatser say on the d.c. circuit court is posh for obama as he looks for ways to sir kim event the polarized house. do you agree with that?circumved house. do you agree with that? >> to actually do their jobs. that's actually evidenced by the nominees that the president has put forward. so if you actually look at just the three most recent circuit court judges that the president has successfully gotten through the confirmation process in the senate, all three of those, all three of those now judges had to wait more than 250 days for their vote. but once they actually got a vote, they got more than 87 votes each. so this is not a matter of putting ideological people on the bench. this is a matter of putting qualified people who have bipartisan support on the bench in place, to do their jobs and to fulfill their responsibilities that federal judges all across the country have, which is to make sure that justice is served in a timely fashion. >> josh does bring up a goo

on this. there was a big "washington post" story a month or so ago about how he was going to be the democrat democrats savior. and i don't think obama has a history of putting himself out there in a consistent way for other candidates. >> bill: you are right. he does not. >> so i would say this is a nice down payment but i would watch very carefully for what his schedule right be in the future. >> bill: and he didn't say -- at the first event, i believe that part of this is getting nancy pelosi back in as speaker. i think he could like to see the house come back to democratic control in 2014. >> yeah, i don't think that's going to happen. but it could happen. i think a more intriguing question and one we're more likely to have to answer is what happens if the gap gets narrowed even further. if you have 10, 12 more -- what is the number they are going to hit? 18? >> bill: i don't know, but democrats picked up eight seats this time. and if it gets more narrow then you are saying maybe they are going to have to work together? >> yeah, figuring out what is goin

difficult is this for the administration? we have a poll think if president obama wanted to reinstate the white house tours he would have the power to do that, 63%. what does that tell us about the political implications? >> there is a cynicism about washington in general. the administration just applied to congress and everyone would blame congress for things. that is pretty good reflex to blame congress. people are suspicious and cynical about the white house. and people do think there are games being played here. martha: yeah. we'll see. what kind of impact that has and you know, every president has, you know, certain amount of credibility and credit that they can sort of call in. we'll see whether or not it was injured to any extent by this exercise. rich, thank you. >> thank you, martha. you too. bill: we know a judge is clearing athe way for a big city in america to file for bankruptcy. this could mean big changes for retirement plans for a lot of people. so we're wondering whether or not this is just the beginning? martha: it is not "baywatch." it is a supermodel turned superhe
